To the Members of the Church and Congregation : 

IN presenting this record of the work of the past 
year to the members of our congregation we 
desire, first, to praise God for all the rich spiritual 
blessings which we have enjoyed, and which have 
made any success possible in the different depart- 
ments of religious activity connected with our church. 
We have felt His presence with us in the sanctuary 
each Sabbath day. On every Wednesday evening, 
as we have met in the place of prayer, His peace has 
filled our souls, and our hearts have burned within 
us as He has talked with us and opened to us the 
scriptures. In the Sunday-schools, officers and teach-* 
ers have felt the inspiration of His wisdom and love 
who took the little ones in His arms and blessed 
them, and who, looking upon the young man, loved 
him. And in all our benevolent work we have never 
been without His benediction. All our labor has 
been " in His name," and He has constantly whis- 
pered in our hearts : " Inasmuch as ye have done it 
unto one of the least of these, ye have done it unto 
Me. 



YEAR-BOOK OF 

But the ont cause for the deepest gratitude as we 
review the past year is. that we have had with us the 
abiding presence of the Holy Spirit. There has been 
no sudden and temporary awakening, which we 
call a " revival," but there has been what is far bet- 
ter, a steady religious interest and constant additions 
to the church from the world, which have witnessed 
to the fulfilment of the promise, " I will pray the 
Father and He spall g>ve you another Comforicfr, 
that He may abide with you forever, even the Spirit 
of truth." We rejoice in this uninterrupted presence 
of the Holy Ghost, and because He has warmed our 
hearts and kept unbroken our communion with 
Christ, our love to one another has been fervent, and 
the showers have never ceased to fall upon our sow- 
ing in the vineyard. 

The year has been one of earnest labor and enthu- 
siasm in all the departments of our church work. 
Activity for Christ must go hand in hand with love 
for Him, if a christian would be strong in the spirit- 
ual life ; and it is a matter of great satisfaction that 
so large a number of our people are engaged in 
religious work, not only for the good thus done to 
others, but for the rich benefit to themselves. 

We desire, very earnestly, that to all in our con- 
gregation, the Sanctuary each Sabbath may seem 
like a home, and that your connection with us may 



. 






MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 5 

be a great comfort and joy. Let us remember that 
each one must do his and her part in making the 
church life warm and loving, and as your Pastor let 
me assure you, that it is my strong desire to know 
all of my people, and to be to every family circle 
and every individual a spiritual helper and a true 
friend. 

Eleven of our members have passed, during the 
year, from our fellowship to the sweeter, richer com- 
munion with the saints in glory. They have left 
behind them sorrowing hearts, and our church life 
is poorer because of their absence, but the Master, 
who knoweth best, had grander work for them in the 
heavenly vineyard, and the glad and eternal reunion 
is only a little way before us all. 

God, by His grace, make us more faithful, until we 
all have passed beyond the changing skies and the 
conflicts of the earth life, and into the perfect satis- 
faction and tearless service in the Temple not made 
with hands. 

Your Pastor and Friend, 

Abbott Eliot Kittrepoe.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 

WE herewith submit to the members of the 
church our report of Sunday School work 
in Home School for year ending April ist, 1890. 

The school has met as usual every Sabbath after- 
noon at 3 P. M., in lecture room of the church. 

Our number on the roll, including officers, teachers 
and scholars is 309, with an average attendance for 
the year of 180, which, however, is hardly a fan- 
showing, as the average since January 1st has been 
200. 



1 6 YEAR-BOOK OF 

We have a faithful corps of officers and teachers, 
who are regular in their attendance, their one object 
being, the salvation of the souls of our scholars. 

The school is in possession of a valuable library 
of 451 volumes, which we expect shortly to increase 
'to over 600 by purchase of new books. As will be 
noticed in the report of our treasurer, the school has 
paid during the year $550 to church building fund, 
being part on account of $1,000 pledged by school to 
said fund. 

Out of a total of 275 scholars on the roll, we are 
happy to say, that 95, or over one-third, are members 
of the church, and as a proof that God is blessing us 
in our labors, 12 of the above number confessed 
Christ during the past year and several more have 
signified their intention of uniting with our church 
at the next communion. 

Truly we, as laborers in God's vineyard, should be 
encouraged to more prayerful and earnest endeavors 
in the work of winning souls for Christ. 

" He who winneth souls is wise." 

While rejoicing in God's goodness to us as a school 
we have yet to mourn the loss of two of our 
most faithful teachers, called to their reward in the 
midst of their work. 

Miss Ella Tracy, a most conscientious and self-de- 
nying Christian, always in her place at school, was 



MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 17 

taken from us just as we were about entering the 
new year, and while preparing this report the sad 
news comes that Mrs. Rufus L. Todd, a co-laborer 
with us for three short months, has in God's myste- 
rious providence been taken to himself. 

In closing we would urge upon parents the im- 
portance and need of their co-operation with us in 
this great work, and trust that they will see to it that 
their children are pungtual and regular in their at- 
tendance at the Sabbath School. If there are young 
people in the church, who are not availing themselves 
of the privilege and opportunity of studying God's 
Word, we invite them to join one of our adult Bible 
classes in charge of excellent teachers, and a blessing 
will follow their prayerful study of the truth. 

" Search the Scriptures, for ill them ye think ye have eter- 
nal life, and they are they which testify of me." — John v. 39.

SUPERINTENDENT'S REPORT. 



THE past year of the Branch Sunday School has 
been marked by growth. Better order in the 
exercises is one feature. This is partly due to in- 
creased facilities for maintaining it : still more to a 
spirit of reverence. There has also been a steady 
improvement in the attendance and intelligence of 
the scholars, the review Sundays bringing out better 
and more prompt replies. 

Our maximum attendance and our monthly and 
yearly averages have shown fair increase. Our 
averages during July and August was 195 and the 
remaining months of the year the average was 430. 

The largest attendance for one Sunday was 693. 
The children have always sung well, yet they have 
improved here also, in learning the new songs more 
readily than in former years. The best record of 
growth is in the members that have made a confes-

sion of their faith in Christ, 29 having united with 
our church. On Easter Sunday we distributed about 
500 plants to the scholars ; they appreciated them 
greatly. f 

April nth an entertainment of music, magic lan- 
tern and refreshments was given to the adults and 
the following day to the infant department. 

May 24th a Tea was given to the parents of the 
scholars and a souvenir presented to the mothers ; 
they were addressed by Dr. Kittredge, and the Rev. 
Mr. Pesik spoke in Bohemian. 

June 21st the Strawberry Festival brought out the 
full number of children. 

Nov. 27th 30 Turkeys were distributed among the 
poorer families for Thanksgiving. 

Dec. 22d a union service of the Home and Branch 
Schools took place at the church instead of the re- 
gular evening service, consisting of addresses by our 
Pastor and a number of well-known men of our city, 
singing of Christmas Carols by each and both of the 
schools and presentations by classes from the Home 
school destined for the Christmas of the mission. 

Dec. 27th, in the afternoon, the infant department 
held its Christmas exercises and in the evening the 
main department, in the lecture room of the church. 
As in previous years a great number of the gifts 
came from the Home school, and grateful acknowl- 



22 YEAR-BOOK OF 

edgements are due to our young friends, who re- 
membered us. 

Visiting among the families of the scholars has 
been more systematically prosecuted than in former 
years. During the summer Miss E. L. Westbrook, 
our missionary, sought out and sent to the country 
under the provision of the Tribune Fresh Air Fund 
and the assistance of some friends, nearly every child 
within the age limitation of the fund, and a few be- 
yond this limit where the cases were specially de- 
serving. . The effect of these vacations on the chil- 
dren has been very salutary. 

A mother's meeting has been conducted by Miss 
Westbrook during the year and the work has been 
especially fruitful. 

A prayer meeting is held every Tuesday evening. 
More of the parents of the children have been won 
to something like regularity in attendance and God's 
spirit has turned members to seek for salvation. 

Regular preaching services are held by Mr. Milton 
S. Littlefield, under whose faithful service great ad- 
vance in attention and interest has been made; a re- 
port on this branch of our work will be found else- 
where by Mr. Littlefield. 

There have been two deaths among the members 
of our school : Maggie Rohrs, Sept. 29th, and Mrs. 
Burns, Oct. 4th. 



MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 23 

We would earnestly commend this work to your 
consideration. First of all in your prayer for God's 
blessing, and then in laying out your own part in 
Christian activity, may the Holy Spirit lead many to 
aid us in this work. 

" Therefore said he unto them, the harvest truly is great, 
but the laborers are few, pray ye therefore the Lord of the 
harvest that he would send forth laborers into His harvest." 
Luke, 10-2. 

Hark the voice of Jesus calling 
"Who will go and work to-day ? 
Fields are white and harvest waiting 
Who will bear the sheaves away ? 
Loud and long the Master calleth 
Rich reward He offers free 
Who will answergladly saying 
Here am I, O Lord, send me !

PRIMARY DEPARTMENT. 

Branch School. 

"These little ones which believe on me." 

HTHE Primary Department has shown a steady 

growth in attendance and interest on the part 

of both teachers and pupils during the past year. 

In January, 1889, we numbered 155 children and 
10 teachers, and in January, 1890, 321 children and 
20 teachers. 



24 YEAR-BOOK OF * 

The plan of having these little ones in small 
classes is no longer an experiment, but a success. 

The tie between teacher and pupil is a very close 
one, the teacher being early made acquainted with 
any serious trouble in the family, and by wise visit- 
ing, enabled to bring cases of distress before the 
church. 

One such case was that of a Spanish girl dying 
with consumption, the family having been reduced 
to the direst need. 

The teachers were enabled to bring Christian aid 
and comfort into this home, and when death relieved 
the sufferer, on our appealing to the church, four of 
the gentlemen .promptly paid all funeral expenses. 

The result has been, three members of the family 
have joined the Spanish Evangelical Church of this 
City, won to the Master by these acts of Christian 
sympathy in their time of need. 

Our appeals to the church have always met with 
a hearty and cordial response. 

The Department consists of 16 classes, 14 holding 
their sessions on the third floor of the Mission build- 
ing, one large class under two teachers on the fourth 
floor, and through the kindness of the Manager of 
the Children's Aid Society, another large class is 
taught in their building on 60th Street, where we 
were compelled to send the children on account of 



• -

the crowded condition of our rooms ; even the halls 
and stairways having been utilized. 

We have given to the children over 100 Bibles and 
Testaments as rewards for punctual attendance, 
knowing that " The Word shall not return to Him 
void." 

Many of the little ones are trusting in the Saviour, 
and in their childish way are trying to " witness for 
Him." 

The year has been filled with repeated evidences 
of God's goodness, and we would " Call upon our 
soul and all that is within us, to praise and magnify 
His holy name." 

Sowing the precious seed " in His name," we look 
to Him for the abundant harvest. 

Respectfully submitted, 

Margaret L. Russell, Lillie M. Fleck,

PRESIDENT'S REPORT. 



THE Sewing Circle resumed its usual meetings in 
October, 1889. 

While the work of making garments for the poor 
has progressed satisfactorily, the social element has 
been steadily growing, and it can be truthfully said 
that we see an increasing interest in every depart- 
ment of our church work, as the result of coming to- 
gether at these meetings. 

The lunches have been maintained without any 
difficulty; indeed we should be loth to give them up, 
for we then have an opportunity of meeting our be- 
loved Pastor, as it would be impossible for some of 
us otherwise to do. We have greatly enjoyed having 
the young ladies of the Guild meet at the same hour 
and place, and in addition to the inspiration given 
by their bright young faces, we certainly feel that the 
pleasure of the lunch hour has been greatly enhanced 
by their graceful attendance on the older ladies. 

An unusually large attendance marked our last 
meeting, and we sincerely hope that our guests were 
so favorably impressed that we shall meet them again 
in the fall, when we rally around our new leader, and 



28 YEAR-BOOK OF 

that then too we shall welcome many of the familiar 
faces which, because of illness, we have missed dur- 
ing the past season. There is sadness in our hearts, 
as we think of the deep sorrow which has fallen upon 
two members of our faithful cutting committee, and 
desire to express to them heartfelt sympathy in their 
bereavement. Let us hope that the usefulness of 
this society may be increased from year to year, and 
that we may earnestly strive to win the approval of 
our Divine Master. 

Mrs. M. A. Randolph, 

Pres. 



SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

HTHE Ladies Sewing Circle has held ten meetings 
during the winter. 

Sixty-five ladies have been present at one or more 
meetings, the average attendance being thirty-three. 

A box was sent in December to the Rev. J. Hoehje, 
of Camden City, Kansas, valued at $105. 

Clothing valued at $25.79 was distributed among 
six needy families of the parish. 



'ADJSON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 



For the " Bethany Day Nursery" there has been 
prepared clothing valued at $23.35, an< ^ f° r the So- 
ciety for Prevention of Cruelty to Children, clothing 
valued at $10.70. 

In all there have been 159 garments, 34 sheets and 
27 pillow cases, made in the Society during the winter. 

In November Mrs. F. B. Taylor very kindly presen- 
ted the Society with a new "Home Sewing Machine." 

One of the machines formerly used by the Society 
was then exchanged for a new one, $^^ being paid 
in addition. This machine was presented to the 
Young Ladies' Guild. 

The meetings of the Young Ladies' Guild have 
been held at the- same time with that of the Ladies' 
Society, and have added much to the pleasure and 
sociability of the meetings. 

A Thanksgiving dinner was given to School No. 9,

MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 



THE meetings of the Madison Avenue Auxiliary 
to the Women's Board of Foreign Missions 
have been held the first Monday of each month 
throughout the winter of 1889-90. 

The plan suggested by our President, for the pur- 
pose of increasing the interest and attendance, and 
making the meetings attractive, viz.: of appointing a 
committee of twelve who should take the responsi- 
bility of the meetings— two acting for each session — 
has been adopted. This method of having commit- 
tees acting as chairmen, preparing papers on the 
subject given for the day, and securing speakers, has 
been a decided success. 

Addresses have been made by Miss Flatterey on 
Heathenism in New Mexico ; 

Miss Andrews on The Lives of High Caste Women 
and Zenana Work in India ; 

Mr. Hunter on the McAll Mission in France. 

The roll of membership numbers between 60 
and 70. 

Six sessions were held, with an average attend- 
ance of 40. 



32 YEAR-BOOK OF 

During the past year the receipts from the Society 
amounted to $553.18. 

This Auxiliary supports a teacher in Ferris Semi- 
nary, Yokohama, Japan, to whom $360 is paid annu- 
ally. $85 was sent to the McAll Mission, and 
smaller disbursements in other directions. 

Thus the record of the past year closes and we 
hope that the page for the year to come will open 
with still brighter prospects — more workers in the 
Master's vineyard, so that greater results may be 
achieved towards the coming of His kingdom.

REPORT FOR THE YEAR. 

HE illness of our President, Miss Sarah Jackson, 
makes it necessary for the Vice-President to 
submit the annual report; but this duty has been so 
completely anticipated by the Secretary and Treas- 
urer that little remains to be added. 

The average attendance at our sewing meetings 
during the past t year has been fifteen, and owing 
to the very kind gift of a sewing machine from the 
Ladies' Benevolent Society, we have been enabled 
to accomplish more work with half the labor. We 
take this opportunity to thank the ladies for their 
kindness, and trust that the constant buzz of its 
wheels has borne testimony to its great usefulness. 

It will be observed that the Treasurer's report 
shows a larger balance, than that of any previous 
year of the Guild's existence. This is exceedingly 
gratifying, since it has been entirely self-supporting, 
and at the same time has responded liberally to all 



34 YEAR-BOOK OF 

worthy appeals. We, therefore, enter upon the labor 
of the new year with both encouragement and hope. 

Mary Hoffman, 

Vice-President. 



SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

HPHE Young Ladies' Guild, numbering twenty-six 
members, has held meetings during the winter 
of '89 and '90 for the transaction of business, also to 
sew for benevolent objects. 

Our sewing meetings were held in conjunction 
with those of the " Ladies' Sewing Circle " of the 
church with whom we were kindly invited to lunch, 
at which times it afforded us pleasure to serve 
them. 

Forty garments were completed, and twenty-five 
dolls were dressed at these meetings. 

A Christmas box was sent to a Sunday School at 
Cawker City, Kansas. 

At Christmas the Guild dressed a tree for the chil- 
dren of the Bethany Day Nursery, many kind friends 
in the church donating gifts for the same. 

A number of Christmas letters were distributed 
among the inmates of Bellevue Hospital, Free Home 
for Young; Girls, and Sing Sing Prison.

MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 35 

A box containing articles to help toward furnish- 
ing a new Parsonage was sent to Cawker City, and 
another to Hospers, 111. 

To awaken on the part of the young ladies an in- 
terest in missions, our president arranged for a series 
of missionary talks to be given at the close of some 
of our sewing meetings. At such times, interesting 
addresses were made by Miss Walzer, Mrs. Horton 
and Mrs. Bainbridge. 

The Industrial School, still under the management 
of Miss L. D. Smith, is in a prosperous condition. 

A kindergarten department has been formed this 
year for the little ones, who as yet are too young to 
be taught to sew. 

The young ladies are still helping Mrs. Mitchell, 
the widow in whom we became interested last year. 

An Easter offering of flowers was made by the 
Guild to the Hospital for Crippled Children. 

We were very fortunate in securing Mrs. Sarah 
Cowell LeMoyne to give a parlor reading, the pro- 
ceeds of which will be for the benevolent work of 
the Guild. The reading took place Tuesday after- 
noon, April 8th, at the Madrid, 180 West 59th street, 
and was a great success, a handsome sum being 
realized from the sale of tickets. On the morning 
of April 10th a few of the Guild, assisted by outside 
talent, gave a concert at Bloomingdale, and the

SECRETARY'S REPORT. 
'"THE Industrial School began its fourth year's work 
under the superintendency of Miss L. D. Smith, 
who for the past three years has given her time, 
strength and energy to the instruction of the poorer 
classes,in all branches of sewing. Besides the regular 
school, numbering from 130 to 190 each Saturday, a 
Kindergarten has been started, for little ones under 
six years of age. Here the regular Kindergarten 
system is taught «to forty children, each step prepar- 
ing the child for the sewing she is to be taught 
within a few months. The sewing department is 
divided into 26 classes, consisting of seven girls 
each. Besides these, special instruction is given in 
the making of button-holes, gathering, and it is 
hoped soon to have a machine class. 

The singing in both departments of the school is 
one of the most attractive features. Calisthenic 
exercises are also taught for fifteen minutes in the 
middle of the morning, in order to rest the children. 

As each child finishes the garment on which she is 
sewing, it is given to her, and the older girls not 
only make clothing for themselves, but for their 



f 



MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 39 

younger brothers and sisters as well, and so help the 
tired mother at home. At the end of the year a 
prize is given to the girl having the best finished 
garment, and this is a great incentive to every one 
to do her best. 

That the school, with its many teachers, bright 
room and beautiful music, is a pleasure as well as 
an untold benefit to the children, is proven by the 
inability of rain or weather to keep them at home.

PRESIDENT'S REPORT. 






'T'IME has swept us on until we, as a Day Nursery, 
find ourselves two and a-half years old. 

Every child brought to the Nursery, every day's 
experience is different from every other — the joy and 
sadness, the anxiety and the satisfaction of caring 
for these helpless little ones alternate. 

But our work does not end just in the caring for 
the little ones. The mother, being relieved of the 
care of the children, has time to work, and her earn- 
ings increase the funds of the family, so that the 
whole family can have better food ; in some cases 
where bread and coffee constituted the whole break- 
fast, now they can have a little meat. Surely, father 



42 YEAR-BOOK OF 

and mother can do a better day's work after a sub- 
stantial breakfast. 

It is a constant marvel to those who visit our Nur- 
sery that these children, each with a different, indi- 
vidual disposition, untrained or illy trained, so readily 
obey and are so happy together. 

One of our managers says she cannot get over the 
goodness and sweetness of these children. This we 
consider one of the proofs of the good done by our 
Nursery. 

We must here mention the benevolent kindness of 
the doctors. Dr. Derby examines all the children and 
signs the certificates of health before admission. Dr. 
Simmons has prescribed for the children, not only at 
the Nursery, but has attended them in their homes, 
visiting them in some cases twice a day. Both these 
gentlemen have materially assisted us in our work. 

The aggregate attendance at the Nursery for the 
first six months of its existence was 601. For the 
year ending June ist, 1889 (of which there has been 
no published report) the attendance was 6,600, mak- 
ing an average of 22 per day. The Secretary's report 
will give the figures for the year ending April ist, 
1890. 

Mrs. Richard Stout.

MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 43 

SECRETARY'S REPORT. 

HE Bethany Day Nursery began the third year 
of work April 1st, 1889, continuing throughout 
the entire year, including the summer months. 

The Nursery is directed by a Board of Managers, 
having for its President Mrs. Stout ;' Treasurer, 
Mrs. Pence ; and Secretary, Miss Kittredge. The 
Matron, Mrs. Olmsted, took her position in the Nur- 
sery on the 17th of May, since which time she has 
fulfilled her duties in the most acceptable manner. 

The Nursery occupied the first two floors of the 
Mission Building, 440 East 57th street. The laboring 
women in the vicinity are hereby enabled to leave 
their children on their way to work, having them 
well cared for until their return in the evening, for 
the small sum of five cents a day. 

The attendance at the Nursery for the entire year 
was a total of 7,160 children, making an average of 
23 children a day, neither rain nor weather making 
any perceptible difference in the attendance. 

Under God's special providence no disease — with 
the exception of a few cases of measles — has come 
into the Nursery, and we have had but very few 
deaths. We feel that we have great cause to be 
thankful to Doctors Derby and Simmons for their 
watchful care of the children. 

Donations have been received from the Ladies Aid 



44 YEAR-BOOK OF 

Society, the Young Ladies Guild, Miss Randolph's 
Sunday-school class, and from many individual ladies 
in the church. 

During the year the Board of Managers has lost 
one of its ablest helpers in its Vice-President, Mrs. 
Randolph, who resigned on account of assuming 
heavier responsibilities in church work. 

We feel that we have great cause to be thankful 
that our work has steadily progressed during the 
past year. May it prove an inspiration to us in the 
year that is to come, giving us courage and strength 
to undertake greater things for Him whom we are 
trying to serve, and for the little ones whom He has 
committed to our care — remembering always that 
" Inasmuch as we do it unto one of the least of these, 
His little ones, we do it unto Him."

REPORT OF THE SERVICES AND PASTORAL 
WORK. 

THHE year has been one of constant and encourag- 
ing progress. July ist the Sabbath evening 
services, which had been suspended for some weeks, 
were begun anew, with an attendance the first night 
of 45. They have been held regularly ever since, 
with an increasing interest and attendance. 

During the summer the meetings were conducted 
as evangelistic services, but in September this was 
changed, and since then there has been preaching 
every Sabbath evening. The order of service is 
rendered attractive by frequent singing and respon- 
sive reading of Scripture. The people also join in 
the reading of the Commandments and in repeating 
the Apostles' Creed. 

Located, as the Mission building is, away from 
the crowded avenue, the congregation is composed 
mostly of our own church members and regular 
attendants, but not infrequently strangers have been 
attracted by the music, and in two instances have 



f 



MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 47 

remained, after happening in, to ask for a Bible, 
expressing a desire to live a Christian life. Many 
so coming have become regular attendants, and 
some have since been received to church member- 
ship. 

Some of the older members of the Sabbath-school 
have recently organized a choir, which has greatly 
added to the interest of the services. 

An object sermon has occasionally been preached 
to the children, and on five occasions I have been 
assisted by Mr. Herman Masser, who preached in 
German, thus helping in no slight degree to advance 
the work. 

The attendance varies from fifty to seventy-five 
on Sabbath evenings, and we find that God has 
richly blessed the services and honored the efforts 
to proclaim the good news. 

The Tuesday evening prayer meeting services 
have been held regularly with increasing interest. 
These are distinctively the people's meetings ; pray- 
ers and testimonies being offered at every meeting, 
often in both German and English. The power of 
the Holy Ghost has been wonderfully manifested in 
these services. It requires a very stormy night to 
lessen the attendance appreciably. Words of trust 
and faith have been uttered by those to whom the 
way seems very dark, that truly show the reality of 



48 YEAR-BOOK OF 

Christ's Gospel. And testimonies of answered 
prayer, both for personal growth and for the con 
version of friends, have been given at many meet- 
ings by those who at the beginning of the year had 
not named the name of Christ. The attendance is 
from 60 to 75. 

During the year, 46 have been received into 
church membership, five by letter from other 
churches. 

At the last two communion seasons the sacra- 
ments were administered at the mission building, 
about 100 being present at each service. 

Not the least encouraging part of the year's 
work has been the organization of a Young Men's 
Association, with a membership of 25, which gives 
evidence of an active growth. 

Since July 1st, from funds given me for the pur- 
pose and in such manner as seemed most advisable, 
I have expended $53 in relieving the wants of those 
who seemed deserving. 

Five persons have been assisted in finding em- 
ployment. Visiting the people in their homes, I 
have been able to minister to their spiritual needs 
more effectually than through the chapel services, 
and to reach many, who can only be approached 
through an interest manifested in the children who 
attend the Sabbath School. 






MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH. 49 

In one instance the singing by the children of a 
hymn learned in Sunday School was the means of 
touching their father's heart. And at a subsequent 
visit, after several ineffectual efforts to interest him, 
he of his own accord requested prayers, and asked 
for a Bible. 

Bibles and Christian literature in English, Ger- 
man and Bohemian, have been freely distributed. 

About 400 personal calls have been made in the 
families of those connected with the mission, and 
frequently I have been enabled to carry something 
of joy and brightness to the sick and weary by 
flowers and delicacies, given by members of the 
church, to whom the reward will come for having 
" done it unto one of the least" in His name. The 
year has been one of growth and blessing. Our 
great need now is a chapel better adapted for the 
services.

/^\UR work is entirely in the future, but we look 
forward to a prosperous and useful year. 
After several meetings as a Bible class, it was deci- , 
ded to organize a men's association, whose object 
would be to promote the intellectual and spiritual 
life of its members. 

The club was fully organized and the constitution 
adopted March 22, with an active membership of 
twenty-live. It is our purpose to open a reading- 
room for the use of our members ; to hold regular 
meetings for literary work and for such other means 
of improvement or pleasure as may seem advisable, 
and to hold ourselves in readiness to do all in Our 
povver to advance Christ's kingdom. 

For the Executive Committee, 

M. S. Littlkfield, Jr., President. 
Chas. Schimunek, Secretary.

HPHE Mothers' Meeting, held in the Mission con- 
nected with our church, was reopened in Octo- 
ber, having been closed during the summer months. 
Mothers having children in the Mission School were 
gathered in, the most needy having been sought. 
We resolved that the purpose of our meeting should 
be to strive, with His help, to know and follow our 
Savior more closely. The meetings are held weekly, 
from two to five P. M. There are now thirty-five 
members on roll ; average attendance, twenty-six, 
The first part of the afternoon is devoted to the 
making of garments, chiefly for their children, the 
rest of the time is occupied with the reading of the 
scriptures, recital of scripture verses by the women, 
singing, prayers, giving of tracts, &c. Some of these 
mothers have no other opportunity of hearing God's 
word, unless read to them in their homes, not being 
able to attend the evening meetings, small children

requiring their attention, and they remain at home 
sabbaths to keep their husbands from going to 
the saloons and spending their week's earnings in 
drink. More than one have found peace in believing 
in these meetings. $50 has been received from the 
church to carry on this work. Stating at one of the 
meetings, that it was through the pastor and his 
people that they were receiving these benefits, at 
the following meeting, I received from the women 
a number of notes filled with heartfelt thanks and 
expressions of gratitude. May we be remembered 
by you ail at the throne of grace.

'"THIS Society was organized in July, 1887, with 
seven girls as members, and with Mrs. J. C. 
Davis as its President. 

The purpose of the Society is to provide an even- 
ing home for the girls of our city, who toil from 
morning till night for the support of themselves and 
those dependent on them, and also, by classes of in- 
struction, to educate and develope them for useful- 
ness in the world. This large class of working girls 
appeal very strongly to our Christian sympathies, 
both because, owing to the necessity laid upon them 
from their earliest childhood, they have had but few 
educational advantages, and because they are ex- 



54 YEAR-BOOK OF 

posed to peculiar temptations in a city like this. We 
have, therefore, furnished the second door of the 
building No. 440 East 57th Street neatly but attract- 
ively, as parlors for the girls, with a Steinway 
" Grand," the gift of that firm to the club, with 
magazines and papers, and with a library of about 
five hundred volumes, consisting of books of his- 
tory, biography, travel and general literature. In 
these parlors the girls meet every evening and read 
and sing, laugh and dance, and forget toil and sor- 
row in the brightness of their happy evening home. 

There are classes in dressmaking, millinery, sten- 
ography and typewriting, cooking and calisthenics. 
There is also a .bible class, held one evening of the 
week, under the care of Mrs. Yeager. 

A lady physician is connected with the club, who 
instructs the girls on subjects that are vital to their 
physical health, and also converses with those who 
need her professional care. 

This organization is entirely unsectarian, and yet 
it is Christian, and so the social pleasures and the 
studies of each evening are closed with a hymri of 
praise and prayer, but the attendance on these ser- 
vices is voluntary. 

The only pecuniary obligation on the members of 
the club is twenty cents a month, and the expenses, 
which are necessarily large, are wholly met by volun- 



MADISON A VENUE REFORMED CHURCH.

tary gifts. In this respect the club differs from 
others in our city, which seek to make the work self- 
supporting, for it is our conviction that most of 
these hard-working girls need the money they earn 
for their own support, and the comfort of their 
families. 

The Board of Managers is composed of gentle- 
men connected with our church, but the Trustees 
represent five denominations, and consist of 

Messrs. R. R. McBurney, 

Cornelius Vanderhilt, 
Thomas C. Sloan, 
James D. Squires, 
Frank P. Perkins, 
G. K. Clark, Jr. 

We present the work of this Society to the sym- 
pathy and financial interest of our congregation, and 
invite them to visit the rooms on any evening, except 
Saturday, and see for themselves the work that is 
being done. 

Abbott E. Kittredge, 

President.
